As 2007 draws to a close, I would be remiss if I did not send a great, big "THANK YOU" to all who have supported my quest during this and previous years. I can not see how any year could top 2007. With the support (and keen eyes) of many, I have now been able to catalog 51 new/previously unknown (to me, anyway!) calendars and collect an astonishing 47 of them!!! As the total number of calendars/variants now stands at 270, adding 51 to the 219 that I knew of at the end of 2006 is an increase of 23%.

Of course, one of those calendars was the Heren Istarion calendar which worked on. It was great to work with Ted Nasmith and Jef Murray and my daughter to create it. I am very pleased with the comments that buyers have sent (all most positive).

Also, I note that there are 100 posts in this thread and that the views have now gone over 10,000. The posts I can understand as I write something here at least once/month. But the number of views? While I am gratified by the number, I find it hard to believe that many find this subject as interesting as I (or at least of enough interest to check in). Therefore, I will attribute it to the many supporters "out there" who are looking out for me and keeping me informed. For this, I am very grateful.

I hope that 2007 was good to you and that 2008 will be even better!

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir

I am about to start seriously collecting Tolkien works, I was wondering how does one tell the printing number of a 1st edition, I am under the belief that 1st edition/ 1st printings are significantly more valuable than 1st edition/ 2nd printings and so on. I would be so thankful for any help on starting my collection, if it is advice, tips, collection lists, and any help in selling me some books (if allowed sorry to mods if this is not allowed) ANY HELP AT ALL WOULD BE APPRECIATED!


Thanks Tom

P.S EXCELLENT WEBSITE!! I just joined
